Apply for our 1 Year Fix and Drive tariff
Sign up to our 1 Year Fix and Drive tariff if you own or lease an electric vehicle and get:
Drive for free with SSE – get enough free electricity to drive for up to 8,000 miles when you charge your electric vehicle during off-peak hours.
Fixed price energy for 1 year – no price rises for the length of your tariff.

Smart meter included – we'll contact you to install a compatible (SMETS2) smart meter, if you don't have one.
Save money by charging your electric vehicle overnight
Our 1 Year Fix and Drive tariff makes it easy for you to save money when you charge your electric vehicle overnight at home.
Plug in your electric vehicle during our off-peak hours and we’ll credit your account for the cost of up to 2,000kWh over the year. That’s enough to drive up to 8,000 miles for free (based on the rated consumption of a TESLA Model 3 Standard Range Plus).
Great for the environment
Our 1 Year Fix and Drive tariff comes with 100% renewable electricity. We’ll match your usage with power from wind and water. So you can drive your electric vehicle with the peace of mind that you’re helping the environment.
What’s more, if you don't already have a compatible smart meter, we'll install one for you at no extra cost.
With energy prices fixed for one year, you’ll also get a discount of £40 per year, per fuel for paying by Direct Debit. That’ll save you £80 over the year.
What you need to know
Information and prices related to 1 Year Fix and Drive are correct as of October 2019. This tariff is available to dual fuel only customers who pay by monthly Direct Debit or quarterly billing only.
You need to own or lease an electric vehicle that you charge at home. We may ask you to prove this. If you’re unable to, we’ll take you off this tariff and put you onto our Standard variable tariff.
We’ll credit your account for the cost of the electricity you use during the off-peak times of your meter, up to 2,000kWh over the year. We’ll spread this credit over the year and apply it to each quarterly bill. We’ll confirm your meter’s off-peak times in your Welcome pack.
To reach up to 8,000 miles, we checked the test data for the TESLA Model 3 Standard Range Plus (E1R) with the Vehicle Certification Agency. We multiplied its electric consumption of 4.0 miles per kWh by the up to 2,000kWh of electricity we’ll include over the year. Your mileage will depend on your car and driving conditions.
This tariff isn’t suitable if you have storage heaters as they won’t work properly with this tariff.
100% renewable electricity
We’ll match the electricity consumed by all customers on 1 Year Fix and Drive with electricity from hydro and wind sources that has the Renewable Electricity Guarantee of Origin (REGO).
By signing up to 1 Year Fix and Drive, you are agreeing to have a compatible (SMETS2) smart meter installed in your property, if you are eligible and don’t already have one. If you have an older smart meter, we’ll need to upgrade your meter so you can benefit from our off-peak rate.
We’ll contact you when you’re eligible for your smart meter installation. If we can’t fit a smart meter, we’ll install an Economy 7 meter so you can use our off-peak rate.
We rely on a mobile phone or wireless signal to receive your readings. If these fail, your bills will be estimated.
Direct Debit saving
By signing up to this fixed price tariff and paying by Direct Debit, you’ll get a discount of £40 a year for each fuel, when compared to another way of paying. The discount is applied to your standing charge on a pence per day basis, until your tariff ends.
